In "Born to Wander," we see the origins of the song. Young Traveling Matt sings an upbeat version with modified lyrics ("I Will Follow You") to his idolized Uncle Gobo, and later sings "I Will Follow Me," which is closer to the version we know.
Finally, Gobo sings an abbreviated version of "Follow Me" in "The Trial of Cotterpin Doozer," backed by the rest of the Fraggles.
"Follow Me" was first performed by Philip Balsam on his and Dennis Lee's audition tape for Fraggle Rock.
Philip Balsam and Dennis Lee rewrote the song for the celebration that was held in Jerry Juhl's honor after his death in 2005. The song was one of Juhl's favorite songs from Fraggle Rock. The new version of the song can be heard in the montage that is included in the Special Tribute to Jerry Juhl on the Fraggle Rock: Complete Second Season DVD set.
